Customer Question
Hi, When I turn...

Hi, When I turn my RX V440 av receiver on it powers off in about 1or 2 seconds. It has not been used for several years but was OK then.

Technician's Assistant: When could you last turn on your instrument?

About 2 or 3 years ago.

Technician's Assistant: Do you have access to a voltmeter to test the voltage coming from the AC adapter?

No.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

No Thank`s.

Over time, the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply circuitry can leak and short out or fail and will need to be replaced.

A local electronics repair shop can replace them for you.
